Backtraces garbled

Many of our issues include a stack trace our customer is sending. But in the issue page they are completely unreadable. I have to find the email and look at that instead.

Would be great if you could detect fixed text, code or just backtraces and preformat them in the issue rendering.

It's very apparent from emails. Of course if someone posted to the site they could use markdown to format it, unless they don't care to bother.

    This shows what the stacktraces look like when someone emails them:

    We've had a lot of discussions around text formatting. I think what we're leaning toward is disabling markdown by default and trying to use something like Rick's human-formatting by default.

    I can't say we'll specifically target this problem (it's a pretty hard one to auto-detect when people mean code), but we'll keep it in mind when we get back around to revisiting text formatting.
